    For those with powder coated grills

    Does your powder coated grill chip? If so how bad? I painted mine a while back, it was doing good at first, but now I have to touch it up atleast once a week. Just want to know if it is worth it to pay the $100 to get it powder coated.

    Thanks,
    Jesse

    powder coating doesn't chip if done properly, i used to test my work by hitting a test piece with a hammer

    Wow thanks, so I will probably take it to get it done this week. I am just getting tired of fixing the chips every week. Took a trip to NC and it looked like a lawn mower threw rocks at it. LOL, but thanks for the help.

    I kinda like doing things myself. I thought powdercoating was expensive, but then I called a couple shops and with all the money I spent on the paint, primer, clear coat and sand paper, I could of just had everything powder coated for a little more money.
